I need to replace the heater core in my 1992 f-350 7.3 des.

Without Air Conditioning
  1. Drain the cooling system to a level below the heater core. CAUTION
    When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  2. Disconnect the coolant hoses at the heater core tubes.
  3. From inside the passenger's compartment, remove the 7 screws that secure the heater core access cover to the plenum chamber. Remove the cover. On some models, it might be easier to first remove the glove compartment.
  4. Remove the heater core.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal. Replace any damaged sealer.

Is there special directions to put coolant in?


Welcome to FIxYa.com



How to Fill Coolant

If the coolant system has been flushed, first add 100 percent ethylene glycol in

the amount listed for the appropriate engine application. Then slowly add clean

water to the system until the level of the coolant mixture has reached the base-of

the radiator neck. Wait for two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant

mixture. add clean water if necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to the

base of the radiator neck

When refilling the engine cooling system, add three engine coolant supplement

sealant pellets, GM RN 3634621 or equivalent, and GM approved new Ethylene

Glycol Coolant DEX-COOL GM RN 9985809.

If the cooling system is being refilled ONLY (no flush), a 50 percent ethylene

glycol and 50 percent clean water mixture should be used to fill the system. Fill

the system until the level of the 50150 mixture has reached the base of the radiator

neck. Wait two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant mixture. add a 50/50

ethylene glycol water mixture as necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to

the base of the radiator neck.

Install the radiator cap making certain the arrows line up with the overflow tube.

Close all air bleeds. DO NOT over torque the air bleed valve. The air bleed valve is

made out of brass.

Fill the coolant reservoir with a 50 percent ethylene glycol and a 50 percent clean

water coolant mixture. The proper amount of this mixture to be installed into the

coolant reservoir is listed below:

Add 0.65 liters (0.68 quarts) of a 5010 mixture of ethylene glycol and clean water

to the coolant recovery reservoir.

CAUTION: The low coolant indicator lamp may come on after this procedure. After

operating the vehicle so that the engine heats up and cools down three times. if at

any time the "TEMP' warning indicator comes on. Immediate action is required.

Air bleed vent is at the thermostat house

Use the cheapest stuff you can find that has ethylene glycol in it.
Walmart sells both Dex-Cool (more expensive) and 'Mixes with any color' coolant of various brands. Just get the kind that mixes with any color and you'll be fine for up to 5 years, according to the label.

A used truck can accomodate the coolant that is inexpensive and have no problems.

Good luck on this one.

What type of coolant should I use for my 1999 ford


Your coolant is one of two types, ethylene glycol or propolene glycol, one is orangish in color and the other is green in color, the choice of which one to use is basically yours, although the two colors should not be mixed, so if you are changing it all, put in regular or extended life, if you are adding, then I would fillup with the same color. If you can not determine a color then change it completely. Hope this helps, let me know

How to get to the thermostat on a ford aerostar 93 awd van?? where is it located??

1. Drain the cooling system with the engine cold.

CAUTION When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

2. Remove the retaining bolts for the thermostat housing. Lift the housing clear and remove the thermostat. It may be easier to clean the gasket mating surfaces with the heater and radiator hoses removed from the thermostat housing.

How to change anti-freeze(coolant) on 2003 buick century


Hello, perform the following steps in this order:
NOTE: car should be cool, in park and on non sloped surface.
NEVER leave used coolant in an area where children or pets can gain access, Anti freeze has ethylene glycol which can be lethal to humans and pets. Used coolant should be immediately taken in a sealed container to a local state certified recycler for proper disposal.
1.Raise front end of car, and place one jack stand under frame of car on the inside of each front wheel.
2.Place a 2 gallon (low profile) bucket under the radiator drain plug. The drain plug will be located at the bottom of the radiator.
3.Unscrew the drain plug and let coolant drain into bucket. (It may be necessary to adjust bucket so no coolant leaks onto the ground.
4.After all coolant has drained from the radiator, tighten radiator drain plug finger tight, then 1/8-1/4 of a turn with a wrench.
5.Unscrew radiator cap and begin filling radiator using 50/50
premixed antifreeze solution.
6.Continue adding premixed solution until fluid is just below the top lip of radiator where cap fastens to.
7.Re attach radiator cap and lock into place.
8.Check radiator overflow reservoir and ensure coolant is between add and full, add coolant as required.
PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS SOLUTION IF YOU FOUND THIS INFORMATION HELPFUL.
